August 04, 2014CUMMING, Ga. — An Atlanta-based health conscious food concept – rolled sandwiches with fresh meat and cheese and locally farmed produce – has opened in Forsyth County.
On July 9, Roly Poly opened their Cumming location at 425 Peachtree Parkway.
"We try to make it as healthy as we can without you really knowing it," said Linda Wolf, one of the Roly Poly founders. "It still tastes delicious."
Director of Operations Jane Ferguson, a Johns Creek resident, opened the Cumming location.
"We didn't really have anything up here," Ferguson said. "My friends were saying, 'When are you going to open a Roly Poly here?'"
Roly Poly offers 45 combinations, including vegetarian and gluten-free options and custom rolled sandwiches, soups and salads.
"The secret of our taste is it's just so fresh," Wolf said. "It's the combination of ingredients and the flavor."
Wolf and Ferguson said the restaurant has been well received.
"We've been very busy," Wolf said. "We've had an amazing amount of families coming in."
The franchise has about 125 restaurants in the country. Cumming is the sixth metro Atlanta location, with other stores in Kennesaw, Woodstock and Duluth.
"A lot of people know what it is, even though it's a small concept," Ferguson said. "When they see it, they're very excited."
